Nursing students help family in need

The Practical Nursing Class of 2018 recently set out to help a particular family that experienced much tragedy.

“The family members are from our community and are involved with one of the Practical Nursing program’s primary clinical sites, which provide invaluable support for our nursing students,” said Laurel Wright, PN program faculty member on the Hobbs Suffolk Campus. “The students are always looking at ways to give back to our community.”

The students collected food items needed to make a complete Thanksgiving dinner, as well as personal items for the family.

“To say that I am proud of my students is an understatement,” Wright said. “They came up with this idea on their own.”

The group deliver the collected items earlier this month.
